the crunch day is actually august 3rd, that's the day when the government has a big $23 billion social security payment and it has between $10 billion and $12 billion in tax revenue coming in. i think the really big issue for the treasury is going to be how it distinguishes between, if you will, paying back the money it already owes, paying back the government bond holders, and paying its ongoing running costs, things like social security, medicare, medicaid, military salaries and so forth, and i think the betting is that the government will put, will give a priority to paying the bills it already owes, to paying the bond holders, simply because if you don't do that, you go into massive default, and the whole global financial system i think really starts getting shaky, but not paying some of the big government commitments within the united states, that's going to get painful pretty fast. >> not paying the social securitys, the medicares, the medicaids of the world or even our defense budget that's as big of an issue for many in many mind as defaulting on our debt which would be a nonpa

street is worried about washington. late wednesday moody's one of the big three credit rating agencies warning it might have to lower the rating if lawmakers don't come to an agreement on raising the debt ceiling. in the statement it said the action was prompted by the possibility that the debt limit woil not be raised in time to prevent a missed payment on u.s. bonds with a small but rising risk of ashort-lived default. economists say if the aaa rating is lowered it will throw the financial markets into chaos and the cost of borrowing would go up to everything from morlts to car loans. ben bernanke warned. >> i think the worst outcome if we don't raise the limit, at some point we default on debt and that would create as i said before, a huge financial calamity. >> reporter: sources say the president knew about the moody's warning as he headed into wednesday meeting which all sides describe as tense. republican majority leader eric cantor cited the president as saying i have reached my limit. he left saying i'll see you tomorrow. the two sides couldn't even agree about what happened in
